People in outrage is what it may take to get BP on its knees and start answering questions and providing the data they are obviously hiding.
I am from the UK and I am 100% behind getting BP to pay up for this massive diabolical mistake.
The world stands to suffer from yet another corporate tragedy that only money ever seems to fix... This time it is going to take a heck of a lot more
than just money.
Yes, many British could stand to lose their pensions. Yes, the UK itself could be brought very close to being on its knees in the global market and,
IMO, it rightly deserves it for being so reliant on such a corporation, along with many others.
A protest on a global scale MUST be listened to this time. The last time there was a global protest, the governments did not listen and a war
continues to rage and young men continue to die over a political issue that many disagree with and have reasons to doubt as to why we fight.
This fight, the fight against BP and the huge clean up of spilt oil, is a fight we must all engage in. We all have to stand up and say our bit and let

"BP misrepresented what their technology could do," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday. "They misrepresented the amount of oil that was
being spewed forth into the Gulf and continued to do so."
but this comment from the British PM is just typical. Typical in its support for a corporation that brings money into the coffers;
"The prime minister explained that he was frustrated and concerned about the environmental damage caused by the leak, but made clear his view
that BP is an economically important company in the UK, US and other countries," the spokesman said in a news release.
"He said that it is in everyone's interests that BP continues to be a financially strong and stable company."
It is in everyones interest that this company stops operating and gets on with fixing this terrible mess. Money should not come into the factor here.
It should go without saying that this environmental disaster should have action taken immediately.
James Carville, Democratic strategist, calls for arrests to be made (as seen in the video on news page linked), and rightly so, especially if data and
evidence is being held back or delayed in being provided. He claims the louisana coast is being invaded and the invasion needs to be stopped.
